"Avantgarde in Dialog: Bauhaus, Dada and Expressionism in Japan"
2000-08-02 until 2000-09-17
Bauhaus Archiv, Museum für Gestaltung
Berlin, , DE Germany

The multifaceted relationship between the European and Japanese Avantgarde at the beginning of the 20th Century is being explored in this project. The National Museum, Kyoto organized a large exhibition in 1999 entitled Avantgarde in Japan Art into Life 1900-1940. Exemplary works from mostly Japanese collections include areas such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, architecture and design. In the summer of 2000 most of these works are on view at the Bauhaus Archive, Berlin. For the German venue the emphasis lies on works from the 1920s.

Already in 1914 an exhibition organized by Herwarth Walden depicted works from the Sturm-Kuenstler in Tokyo. During the following few years Japanese artists in Paris and Berlin came in direct contact with European avantgarde movements. Influences from art, architecture and design played an important role in this development. Some studied at the Bauhaus in Dessau. In contrast once can find strong Japanese influences in works by Johannes Itten as well as other Bauhaus artists.
